Pursuant to the governing regulations of the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 24, Part 570, Section 570.200, CDBG funds must be used so as to give maximum feasible priority to activities which will carry out one of the three broad national objectives: (1) benefit to low and moderate-income families; (2) aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; (3) or activities designed to meet other community development needs having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community and other financial resources are not available to meet such needs. At least 70% of the CDBG funds aggregated over the certified period, not to exceed three years, must be used for activities that benefit low and moderate-income persons, and at least 51% of the beneficiaries of individual activities designed to benefit low and moderate-income persons must be shown to be of low and moderate -income.
